- I use to work in the Print Shop as a co-op job aboard the Queen Elizabeth 2 (QE2). I worked aboard on 3 different occasions. For my first excursion I actually had to learn how to run a 2-color press because at the time that was the only position available. And since this was an opportunity of a lifetime, I wasn't passing it up. For my second excursion, I worked as a Desktop Publisher. Simple. And for my third and final excursion, I worked as the Chief Printer to help cover for a friend who became seriously ill (his lung collapsed) and needed to take leave.
- I was working on board the QE2 when it ran aground back in 1992 off the coast of Nantucket. What an awesome experience that was. . . at least for the crew. I wouldn't say the same for the passengers. lol But all in all, I got to travel to many parts of the world and meet so many people. I went to a wedding in Hawaii, held a Koala and fed the Kangeroo in Australia. I watched the 4th of July Fireworks from the front deck of the ship as they went off by the Statue of Liberty in New York City. I've been to a Lamb Roast in New Zealand, and spent 2-weeks for refit in Hamburg, Germany. And there was so much more. What an amazing experience it was.
- I was an Alpha Sigma Alpha Sorority sister in college. I was just thinking back to the days of pledging. lol. Talk about memories.
